Hocus Pocus Spellbook Brownies.
I warned you it was coming, and today’s the day, 2 ingredient pumpkin pasta with balsamic sage brown butter sauce.
There’s no denying it, this fall I am on a pumpkin kick. Somehow last fall I managed to post just the right amount of pumpkin recipes, but this year? I have too many ideas and I love them all…so you’ll be seeing lots of the orange stuff this season.
I am personally pretty excited about it, and I think you guys will be too. Especially after your reactions to Tuesday’s pumpkin spice oatmeal latte…sure seems like you guys are into the pumpkin recipes.
And everyone? This pumpkin pasta is like no other you’ve ever had. One, it’s REAL pumpkin pasta, and two, balsamic brown butter sauce.
I know that homemade pasta can be scary, time consuming, and at times leave you wanting to you pull your hair out. Trust me, I’ve been there. But this pumpkin pasta is by far the easiest homemade pasta I’ve ever made, and it also happens to be delicious.
The pasta is almost too simple, pantry staple ingredients…just pumpkin (I always have twelve cans of pumpkin on hand…year round…honestly) and all-purpose flour.
Yup, just pumpkin and flour, simple as that, and you don’t even need to add water. The pumpkin acts as the magical binding ingredient and leaves you with the perfect pumpkin pasta every single time. Best part? You don’t have to have a pasta machine or any other fancy equipment. A mixing bowl, rolling-pin, and knife is really all you need…
BUT I will tell you that making homemade pasta is definitely a lot easier and quicker with a pasta machine. Sorry, just being honest. Yes, you can do this all by hand, but it’s totally going to take you twice as much time than if you used a pasta machine. I love the KitchenAid pasta attachments. They work so well and if you plan to be making pasta this fall (you should, you should) then I recommend investing in them. Trust me, they make making pasta fun and painless.
You know, just sayin’.
I left the size of the pasta up to you. I went with more of an angel hair size, but I think fettuccine would work equally well with this sauce.
And speaking of the sauce.
It is so good. That’s really all I have to say. It. Is. So. Good.
Salted butter, caramelized garlic, fried sage, a little white wine, a little balsamic…perfection. Especially when paired with this pumpkin pasta
I’ve made this three times now and I am still so excited about it. It’s just the perfect warming fall dinner.
Also, speaking of being excited, happy Thursday! Anyone else totally ready for the weekend? My week started out a little, um, odd I guess. I was supposed to head to Louisiana for work early Monday morning, but our semi-out of season snowstorm (yes, snowstorm) closed the highway down and I was not able to make my flight. Asher had a snow day, there were power outages all over the county, and plenty of white flakes falling from the sky all day.
Not sure what it is about me and flights these days, but we’re just not meshing all that well. It actually ended up working out ok. I stayed inside, caught up on work, and prepped for filming recipe videos today, tomorrow, and through the weekend. I have Kai in town and it’s go time for videos, so if there’s any fall/holiday recipes you guys would like to see please let me know in the comments!
For now, let’s all agree that our Thursday night needs some buttery homemade pumpkin pasta. Sound good?

K. Cool. Let’s make this pumpkin pasta then!
can i use more basalmic in place of wine? what do you suggest?
I would use broth in place of the wine. I hope you love the recipe! xT
hahaha two more questions. first, do you think i could store my pasta overnight and if so how? second, the other times i have made pasta i let it sit before cutting it? thank you
Yes, you can store in an airtight container in the fridge. Sure, you could let it sit:) xTieghan
which other of your recipes do you think this would go well with. i am making it for dinner but will need some type of protein
I would just add a protein to the dish, chicken or sausage would be great. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan
What type of white wine works best?
I like to use Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
